WISER coming up: RefWorks, Keeping up to date, Open access

During week 5 Bodleian Libraries will be running workshops on RefWorks and keeping up to date with new research:

RefWorks for Humanities (Wed 13 Feb 14.00 – 17.00) (wk 5)
RefWorks is an online reference manager which allows you to save citation,  insert them into your work, automatically generate bibliographies and easily switch between citation styles. This introduction is open to all, but the section on importing references will focus on Humanities examples.
Who is this session for? Postgraduates, researchers and academics and undergraduates wishing to use reference management software
Presenters: Valerie Lawrence and Alice Nelson > Book Now

WISER: Getting information to come to you (Fri 15 Feb 15.30-17.00) (wk 5) 
This session will show you how to set up alerts to journals, databases and websites, so that you receive notifications when new content is added. Participants will have the opportunity to set up RSS feed readers and/or email notifications during the session.
Who is this session for? Postgraduates, researchers and academics.
Presenters: Jane Rawson and Sonya Adams > Book Now

Advance notice that our new session on Open Access at Oxford will take place on 21 February:

WISER: Open Access Oxford - what's happening? (Thursday 21 Feb 11.00-12.00) 
From 1st April researchers funded by RCUK funding councils will be required to make their research papers open access either via free unrestricted access to the final version on the publisher’s web site or by deposit of the accepted manuscript (after peer review) in an open access repository within 6 months (or 12 months for AHRC and ESRC). Come along to a briefing on open access for research publications and Oxford’s position. We will be covering: Green vs. Gold open access publishing; funder mandates and publisher policies; the Oxford Research Archive (ORA) and Symplectic; and how to find more information and help.
